Thirsty koala climbs onto cyclist’s bike for a drink of water

The gorgeous koala ventured out for water on the hot Adelaide day.

Desperate for water on a hot Adelaide day, this thirsty koala left the bush and ventured out to find a drink.
The native animal came along a group of cyclists, climbing up on the wheel of one bike and perching there until the rider gave her every last drop in the water bottle.
So cute!
Another rider, Nick Lothian, snapped the gorgeous scene, saying that the koala chilled out on the bike for half an hour.
They called the fluffy marsupial Carolina and took her to animal welfare officers to check if she had kidney problems, which could have explained the thirst.
Thankfully, the tests came back all clear and Carolina was sent back into the wild.
